In the build-up to the Greater Manchester Green Summit, Burntwood is hosting a sustainability panel at Circle Square on Monday 3 October.
The Greater Manchester Green Summit will be held at The Lowry Theatre on Monday 17 October. The event which is hosted by Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham is an opportunity to accelerate action against Greater Manchester’s five-year environment plan by bringing together like-minded individuals including innovators, policymakers and communities.
In anticipation of the annual Green Summit, Bruntwood has announced it will host a fringe event entitled “Green Summit 2022: A look ahead to this year’s event.”
Bruntwood’s sustainability panel, which is in partnership with SSE Energy Solutions, will be a breakfast session, discussing the biggest topics which will feature at this year’s Green Summit.
The event invites business leaders, academics, journalists, policymakers and individuals to kick start the conversation around the Green Summit, encouraging ideas and conversations ahead of the wider conference, in hopes that when the Green Summit comes around in two weeks, conversations and ideas will already be in motion.
The fringe sustainability panel is focused on what organisations can do to both accelerate the rate of environmental change within Greater Manchester and how to encourage and support individuals as they play their part in meeting the region’s ambitious, science-based target to bet Net Zero by 2038.
Sarah George, Senior Reporter at edie, will chair the panel. Sarah will be joined by Bev Taylor Director of Energy and Environment, Bruntwood, Liam Knaggs Land Lead for EV, SSE Energy Solutions, Chris Matthews Head of Public and Community Affairs, United Utilities and Liz Price Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Sustainability, Manchester Metropolitan University
Breakfast and refreshments will be provided. The Green Summit 2022
